As service providers evaluate strategies to grow their broadband reach, especially in rural markets, a fresh look at fixed wireless is a smart move. In many instances, fixed wireless offers great lower-cost alternatives over traditional wireline broadband to reach the underserved and unserved in rural markets..
Options including 4G LTE – Advanced, offer high-performance wireless broadband access. Utilizing the 3GPP 4G LTE – Advanced standard, as well as emerging unlicensed Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS) options greatly expands broadband access options for service providers.
These options require 4G LTE- Advanced compliant CPE gateways. Zyxel offers two 4G LTE- Advanced Fixed Wireless Access solutions that provide broadband connectivity to those hard to reach remote subscribers. These options include the LTE7461 4G LTE – A Outdoor Router and the LTE7480 4G LTE – A CBRS Outdoor Router.
Features and Benefits of the Zyxel LTE-A Outdoor Router include:
- Lightning-Fast Internet Connectivity
Zyxel offers high performing Fixed Wireless Access with 4G LTE – Advance and CBRS providing downlink data rates up to 573 Mbps with CBRS and downlink data rates up to 400 Mbps using 4G LTE – Advance Outdoor Router. Operators can deliver high speed Internet access up to six miles from the base station to an underserved subscriber.
- High-Gain Antennas
The 4G LTE – Advanced Outdoor Router has built-in high gain directional Antennas that support 2 x 2 (4G LTE –Advanced) or 4 x 4 (CBRS) MIMO design to work under near non-line-of-sight conditions to increase the connection from the Operator’s wireless network and the Subscriber’s premises.
- Easy to Deploy and Manage
The LTE7400 series 4G LTE – A CPE operates in bridge or routed modes for easy deployment where applications call for a specific operation mode.
